1. Repainting my fenders on my rubicon.

    This thing is becoming an obsession lol.My body colored fenders have been scratched and the pigeons have damaged the paint.My question is do I have to remove them to have them sprayed & if so which clips * rivets would I need to have handy.I'm sure some will break.My friend is a body guy he can do it in my garage. He's never done a jeep but he did my rx7 & it came out primo.I just not sure if I have to remove them or can do a good job with them on and maybe a little loose.I apologize if this has been covered. I didn't find the exact info

    Repainting my fenders on my rubicon.

    If they are painted and he is touching them up i wouldnt think you need to remove them.

    If you need to there are a few good you tube videos on how to. You have to note what year rubicon to be more specific on nuts and bolts

    Make sure you remove the pigeons before sanding.

    I believe it depends on the damange done, if it's just scratches, I think you can just paint over it

    scratches would need to be sanded out before painting as paint alone won't make them disappear

    I don't think you have to re move it. Just add a primer before painting it.
